Had the best day out. The kids loved being outdoors, lovely little wooden park, beautiful gardens, feeding wallabies, seeing the mummy wallabies joey's, stunning birds of prey. Really well maintained, staff all so knowledgeable and happy in their work. Such a lovely day out! Can't comment on the cafe as we ran out of time to go and we're having... More

Lovely place even on a winter day. Kids loved the freedom and being able to run around, they also loved the birds of prey and the meerkats and wallabies

We were rather disappointed by our experience here after reading positive reviews. There were 3 adults and 2 children 5 & 4yrs with us. We just felt the entry fee was very overpriced for what you have to offer. We are well travelled as a family and we have to say that although your play area was lovely and sympathetic... More

I live about an hour and a half away from this place but I always think it's worth a visit every now and again, despite the traveling. I used to come here as a child all the time, I loved the place. It's so picturesque and peaceful! The past few times I've been, it's been expanded but it's still really... More

A pleasant visit to see the snowdrops before they disappear. The grounds were lovely to walk through and promise a spectacular daffodil show in the next few weeks. We'll be back top see those. Watched the birds of prey demonstration which was super.

Had a bit of fodder in the tearoom. Very pleasant area to walk around. Birds of prey displays a delight and the lady very knowledgeable. Moses was splendid. What a character. Thorp Perrow desperately needs to update it's aged signs and posters. No excuses here really. They are non existent in some areas or are so badly faded they're unreadable.... More

Even on a cold day we enjoyed our walk around the grounds following the snowdrops trail. The animal centre was great and we met two very friendly wallabies. The park area was great for children and adults. I would recommend wellies as it was muddy this time of year. I would highly recommend a visit.

When me and two male friends went, it was brilliant loads of fun wondering around, and having an owl just over a foot over my head after ducking it was brilliant will definitely be taking my daughter once bigger..
